Hi everyone,

I got a set of business redemption tickets via asiamiles and the trips are all Qantas operated domestic routes. When I was trying to proceed selection on Qantas website, although the system shows that I am the CX ruby tier member, the preferred seat selection for most sections (syd-bne, Mel-Syd and per-Syd) was not available so that I cannot choose the first several rows in front cabin. (BNE-CNS is the only exception that I can choose 1A)
Does anyone know if the privilege of preferred seat selection is available to qf ff only or it is also based on the fare type only? I only knew BA has some special rules towards seat selection.
Many thanks.

It's the same for QF's own silver tier members.


Access to forward rows is only available to Gold/Platinum status holders up until 72 hours prior to departure when any remaining seats become available to everyone else.

T-80 is the magic time you are referring to, however note that it can be a tad fluid.

Ohh...All right. Thanks for your reply. I obviously got used to the generosity of CX, which offers forward seat to any member regardless their tier as long as you contact their customer service.
